I love our nDepth series on NewsOK.

Here’s why …

That’s just the top of the page. And yes, that’s a video player right in the middle of Jim Thorpe’s chest. Who doesn’t want to scroll down and read the rest of story after seeing such a striking presentation at the top?

Click through to see the story, the sidebars, the archived photos and more. Then share it with your friends on Facebook. It’s the kind of story people need to remember as they wind down their Olympic-viewing experience for 2012.
